Frost Amphitheatre, Stanford University

The definition of a "killer 80s show" is right here. The sound quality is phenomenal, as is the performance. Perhaps the best show of 1982, the band sounds very tight and balanced throughout. Very strong vocals by Garcia.

From the first set, every tune shines, Sugaree, Loser (Garcia blisters paint) and Cassidy are outstanding, Tennessee Jed is the best version on wheels that I've heard live or on tape (give second to 11-25-1979) even Far from Me is not as retch inducing as usual...the second set continues with a set opening Playing in the Band, the jam travels through space to the relatively renewed Crazy Fingers...post drums features a lovely Wheel that spins into Throwing Stones, 82 was a good year for Black Peter and this one is no slouch...Double Encore sends the stoned masses home...

2nd best show of the 80s, imo (closely behind 9/12/81)

9-12-1981 is an interesting choice...why this one?

Perhaps if there was a better recording of this show it may move up in my rotation, but until then it's not on my best of list, and I'm not sure it's better than the similar show on 8-27-81. I'm still convinced that 3-9-81 is the best show of the 80's.

for me, 05-06-1981 is the best show of 81, then you have 03-09-1981, 05-16-1981 and the OOPS show of 10-16-1981 to consider...09-12-1981 always sounded too brittle for me...

Why 5-6? If you take away the caution jam, the 2nd set is really kind of boring. With the caution jam, it elevates it to good, but not great imo. I'd rather listen to 5-15-81 or 5-16-81. The fall European tour has many fine shows as well.

yeah but 5/6 has an INCREDIBLE Let it Grow, although I do kind of agree that the 2nd set is a bit lacking, other than the monster jam. 9/12/81 is just the perfect show, imo, great versions of favorite songs, and perfect, spacey Bird Songs, Shakedown....probobly my favorite first set ever. And those whale calls after Eyes....used to freak out Colin Powell

These frost shows were incredible. Don't forget about the night before either, another top-notch show with a great first set featuring On tHE rOAD AGAIN > biodtl, a Nice MNS>Deal. Set 2 opens with Throwing Stones > Touch and features an absolutely beautiful Space > Truckin > Other One > Dew.

Also the next weekend in Santa Fe featured another barn buster show, just tight and hot from start to end! inclusing Half Step > Franklin', LIG > Deal and a Second set that just blisters from the first note.
